Liverpool Women manager Neil Redfearn has resigned after just one league game in charge.
The former Leeds United and Rotherham United boss took over at the side in July after spending last season Doncaster Belles and was in the dugout as the new WSL season began last Saturday.
That game – an away trip to Arsenal Women – ended in a crushing 5-0 defeat and just six days later, the Reds have confirmed his exit from the club.
A statement on the Liverpool website read: “The club would like to thank Neil for his work in rebuilding the squad ahead of the 2018-19 season and wish him the best of luck for the future.”
Former Liverpool, Sheffield Wednesday and England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, 37, has been named as caretaker boss.
He will be assisted by Vicky Jepson, who was appointed as a first-team coach in August.
